to states like new york, where they have big cities and tougher gun laws. >> you know, ruth, when it comes to legislation it seems like other than the nra, there is some agreement on universal background checks. harry reid saying he supported it and a quinnipiac poll showing near 100% support for it in virginia as you look at the numbers right there. also new jersey and pennsylvania, a lot of support. is this where lawmakers can find some common ground right now? >> absolutely. i was at a breakfast with nra president last week sponsored by the christian science monitor and i asked him directly is this time different, and he said no, but i think this time is different, can be different and it particularly can be different on the subject of background checks, which really could -- they won't stop everybody who shouldn't have a gun from getting a gun, but they could stop a significant number of people who shouldn't have guns from getting guns. can i say one quick thing about the photo? two things. one is to the photoshop conspiracy theorists, i think it's very clear if you look at that photo
it will help news arizona, in my city of phoenix a great deal. >> what do you see from your perspective? what are the key components to immigration reform? what has to be includeded? wroo we know it has to be done in a bipartisan way, but a city like mine where i have soon to be a majority latino city and i think that's a strategic advantage for a city like mine, our proximity to the border of mexico, it's a young latino population, a bilingual population, gives us some competitive economic advantages in trade with mexico, latin america, central america. we have to pass comprehensive immigration reform in a way where there is a path to citizenship. it's not an easy path. you have to go to the back of the line and pay a fine or make sure that taxes are appropriately paid. we know that border security has to be an element of it as well, and the dream act has to be a part of it. with so many young people doing the right thing, in college, being leaders of the future, entering the military, in phoenix that's our leaders of the future. we want to support those leaders, so the dream act is incredib
intervention into education and focus on letting the states, the counties, the cities, the local school sites handle the education issues. what we're doing with federal intervention is not working. >> what's your thought? >> well, you know, certainly some of the things the federal government has done over the years haven't been all that successful. and the white house and many democrats in congress are trying to bring about a new approach. and part of what the president talked about in the state of the union is anew approach. but there are some things the federal government is better off doing than others. one of the things, frankly, i think would be a great role for the federal government in education is to help provide some of the resources for infrastructure, for building new schools. it doesn't get the federal government involved in curriculum, but rather in helping with deferred maintenance and helping to build these facilities. that doesn't interfere with that state federal role. but there is an important obligation here to try to help, particularly in those states that are really strug

situation. all that is move north from wichita, now into kansas city. we in lincoln, northwest of kansas city, are just getting into the light snow now. you can see we have pretty good visibility, so not coming down that heavy. 22 degrees outside, winds out of the east, you can see the flags blowing. the wind will get stronger as the snow comes in. we've had watched this snow go from wichita, as you showed, now obviously with that heaviest snow pushing to the northeast, they have a chance to clear those roads, but it was an absolute whiteout. we had thunder, lightning with that snow. it has moved up to the i-70 corridor basically from salina through kansas city into the column by contraand missouri where they're getting the thund thundersnow. unfortunately that has snarled up traffic. anybody on the roads is facing very, very dangerous conditions. it is quold, windy and here comes the snow. you can see it moving into nebraska and iowa. i expect omaha, des moines, kansas city and even st. louis for tonight's rush hour to be very impacted. so i-70 to i-80, tough, tough travels. >> airlines

. ♪ >>> good morning. i'm chris jansing, live in vatican city. you can see the vatican behind me. and boy, there is an interesting energy in this city. preparations underway for the conclave. that will, of course, elect the successor to pope benedict after that shocking decision yesterday to step down. and another big story we're following is back at home, because the president is putting the finishing touches on the first state of the union speech of his second term. and we'll have a lot more on that coming up in this hour. but this morning, we are starting to get new information about pope benedict, and particularly about his health. decisions that may have played into his shocking announcement to abdicate. for example, we now know this morning, the pope has had a pacemaker for some time and actually had a minor operation to replace its batteries three months ago. we're also hearing for the first time about a fall he took while he was on a trip to cuba in mexico. just hours after his announcement, this video circulated. you can see it shows lightning striking st. peter's basilica, maybe

inner cities or whether we're talking about our rural and suburban areas. i think we're coming together on common agreement. >> well, let's talk a little more about the push for a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. here's what the president had to say about that. >> we should restore the ban on military-style assault weapons and ten-round limit for magazines. and that deserves a vote in congress, because weapons of war have no place on our streets or in our schools or threatening our law enforcement officers. >> and in fact, over on the senate side, harry reid has said the same thing, even though he has not given it overwhelming support to these ideas. he said they deserve an up and down vote. is that going to happen? and do you give any chance on passing the assault weapons ban or the limit on the size of magazines? >> i have to be optimistic. there's a thing about being attached to a weapon that automatically is firing and it has nothing to do with sportsmanship. i have been in combat. i have had automatic weapons. sometimes the weapon almost takes you over
about 40 minutes to the southeast of vatican city. this is st. thomas's church, one of only three designed from the ground up. it's the center piece of a pea yat is a here like so many. you have the requisite fountain. this is a little town that has been since the 1620s the summer residence of popes and will be the first place that benedict comes to retire after february 28th. and of course, anchoring this beautiful pea yat sda is the residence. you can see these huge doors. it doesn't look that big, but what's behind it is extraordinary because once you open those doors, you have -- look they are opening it it. we almost caught it. behind those doors you have a big courtyard which is on sundays when he's in residence here, he does do his sunday audience. but there's a huge villa with panoramic views of rome. the space between the villas and gardens behind these doors is bigger than all of vatican city with the most extraordinary views including the lakes that you can see over to the right. it gives you a sense of what pope benedict will be seeing once he's no longer pope. e we do
missing here? >> i think border security, you know, i represent one of the safest cities in the country, so i think there is probably a difference of opinion on whether more border security is needed. for me personally sometimes it turns out to be economic development. if you put more folks along the border in places like presidio and del rio and eagle pass, small towns on the border, you are helping the local economy and buying at stores and contributing and paying taxes so it is not necessarily a bad thing, but i think that people are a little tired of tying immigration to border security in many places. >> so let me just ask you more specifically because the republican criticism is the president hasn't done enough. the white house suggestion is that they in fact have done more for border security than has been done before and we know about the numbers of deportations. has the white house done enough? >> i think the white house has done quite a bit and frankly in today's political environment the truth is you always have to find something to complain about, something to throw rocks at
is getting hit about a major snowstorm. flights in and out of kansas city international have been canceled. numerous roads are closed. the storm is being blamed for two deaths already. >>> the parents of trayvon martin will be in new york city tonight for a candlelight vigil marking one year since the 17-year-old was shot as he walked through his father's gated community in florida. george zimmerman claims he shot martin in self-defense. he goes on trial in june. that prompted a conversation about race and stand your ground laws. they will be thomas robert's guest in the next hour. >>> new violence in damascus. at least eight people were killed in a bombing. several ballistic missiles were fired in aleppo killing 140 people over the last week. john kerry will discuss this with officials in berlin today. yesterday he said the administration has been considering new stepses to increase support for the syrian opposition that the u.s. won't, quote, leave them dangling in the wind. >>> israeli rocket has been fired from gasparin gaza strip israel. >>> social media has been buzzing since ikea sa
support for the nra is steady. it's about 42%. meantime new york city's mayor michael bloomberg who has been fighting the nra is on capitol hill today. millions of dollars from his super pac helped stop an nra backed candidate in the democratic primary to replace former congressman jesse jackson jr. what is your sense manu? how much influence could bloomberg have on the hill and what role might he play in this? >> i think he has a lot of influence and last night's race in the house district in chicago was very important in that regard. that was one democratic district in a democratic urban area. when you're talking about bloomberg's influence among a lot of red state democrats in arkansas, alaska, louisiana, states in which senators will have key votes on gun control, but who are very close to the nra, who are opposed to tighter regulations, that support from bloomberg or his influence is not as strong. so he has a lot of influence among members who are close to him on the gun control issue but democrats from rural state is not so much. >> and we just talked with karen about how the atm
sands mines will be able to expand. right now the size of the city of chicago and plan to expand them to the size of the state of florida. that cannot happen if they don't have access to the global market which is what they want to put this pipeline? they want it as an export pipeline. >> they say 20,000 new jobs could be created. decreased dependency on opec. written in "the new york times" by joe nocera. so how do you convince skeptics? >> well, first of all, we're already processing some of that tar sands oil in the midwest and oklahoma. the reason they want to get this product to the coast is because they cannot get it to the coast in canada. they want to make it available for sale on the global market. this is not oil that is promised to us. it is going to be refined into diesel which is what they do, for the most part, down in the gulf and then make it available for export. we will be bearing all of the risks for this pipeline to go through our aqua firs and through the bread basket of our economy which is experiencing stream drought and when we have fossil furs in that area the
is in the windy city. how is it looking, chris? >> well, chris, you know what? we did get a quick hit of snow here in chicago. most areas picking up about 2 to 3 inches of snow, about 5 inches in the one spot in northern illinois. this after yesterday's massive storm with the second all-time snowiest day in wichita. that storm did weaken considerably by the time it got here. now part of the system on the south end is going to redevelop off the east coast and bring a shot of snow once again for the third weekend in a row to parts of new england and then, chris, for next week, early next week, another storm coming out of the west will bring more snow to some of the hardest hit areas from yesterday. >> the weather channel's chris warren in chicago. thanks for that update. >>> and checking the news feed this morning --. a boost for immigration reform from big labor and big business. the afl-cio and chamber of commerce have struck an agreement on the need for a guest worker program as well as a new federal bureau to study labor shortages and a better way to give american workers first crack at availabl
